Glad to hear things are doing well for Paige. Nice photo of that smiling little face.

Paige is rockin!

Christmas Day
Posted 11 hours ago

Merry Christmas, everyone, we hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
Paige had a great day, complete with opening presents on the floor under her tiny Christmas tree in her room. Later in the day we took a stroller cruise and walk on the first floor of the hospital to see the Christmas trees, giant nutcrackers and a Big Bird statue, then strolled through the ICU to see some of her favorite nurses. She was bored with the decorations but gets excited every time she sees a familiar or unfamiliar face.
She is a lot more mobile now that she is on ZERO IV medication and is stable enough to take off the heart and oxygen monitor for a few hours at a time. Her only tube is one for her food.
Right now she is on continuous feeds to her gut, but we have been giving her applesauce and rice/formula mix on a spoon and she is loving it. It must feel nice to have food in her stomach and if she proves she can keep it down we can avoid getting a "peg tube" put in her belly. That is something common with kids who have been in the hospital for so long they stop tolerating feeds, but Paige wants to eat and wanting to is half the battle.
In the next day or two we will be leaving the ICU and heading to the general floor where we will continue getting her to eat. Not sure how long that might take, so I'll spare us the jinx.
Paige is talkative, saying "A-BOB! A-BOB! A-BOB!" and starting to rock on all fours. She spends a lot of time on our laps.
That's about it for now! Thank you all for the cards and Christmas cards! Great to see familiar and long-lost faces!
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a ... Nice day? Good trip? Ham sandwich?
-Chris
